How do you switch off from work at the end of the day? 😴

Work-life balance is a challenge! Once a long day at work is over, how do you switch off and wind down? Personally, taking my dog for a walk usually does the trick! 🐶

Thursday 2.0 launching today 🚀
For me, it's putting the phone away and playing board games with my kids!

@shahdeepa Loved it! Sounds like a lot of fun! Is there a board game you particularly enjoy playing?

Gaming, journalling, reading or watching a film. So after finishing my day job for 5pm I'll do one of the above. Then start working on my business for 6pm

As a founder, I actually have a hard time switching off from work. Somehow I get interested to try out different experiments with my startup and end up working till late night 😂 So how do you handle with it, Lior?

@gouthamj When you're a founder it's hard not to think about your ideas 24/7 lol. I take my dog for a walk, cook, exercise, spend time with friends and family, or watch TV :)

Closing my laptop lid and going out to play football with my friends. Clears my mind like nothing else. Any sport can really help you out. Highly recommended!

@almost_designer Agreed! Physical exercise has so many benefits.

It depends on my mood, but I like to do CrossFit two times per week, but every day I like to watch some series, it turns my brain off for a couple of hours. I just stated Game of Thrones, and I am totally turned off. :D

For the past few weeks, I have been turning off my computer and talking to my parents about how their day went, and making preparations for dinner.

@amarnath_nagula I think the sole act of closing the laptop's lid can go a long way.

Have always found it quite hard to switch off work. Even if there isn't a lot of work, mind is always racing with ideas. I have found Calm and Headspace actually useful to relax.

I find playing chess helpful, because that active mind still gets something to process that is not work related.

1) Cook dinner and feed myself 2) Self-care (even basic hygiene counts) 3) Hobby (pick up the guitar, ukulele, a book, some embroidery) 4) Cannabis ('nuff said) 5) Melatonin + a podcast as I drift off to sleep...

Reading, for sure! It's so relaxing to get comfy on the coach with a book, but it also takes you out of your mind to focus on someone else's story.
